Analogue clock mechanism
The analogue clock with the two hands is known throughout the world from railway station forecourts, school playgrounds and church steeples.
g+m elektronik can provide you with a broad range of analogue clocks comprising many attractive design variants. Be it with a frame made of plastic, in white, grey or any RAL-colour – our analogue clocks are eye-catchers. We offer you variants in various sizes, single-sided or double-sided, for wall or ceiling mounting. Opt flat glass, with or without second hand, and line dial or regular dial with numbers. If you so wish, we can also design an individual dial for you. Our analogue clocks are also available as damp-proof and weatherproof versions.
Clock system with analogue clocks
You have the option of having a master clock control several analogue clocks as slave clocks. Your advantage is that all connected slave clocks are operated centrally and thus show a uniform time.
If the master clock features a radio receiver, all connected slave clocks show the accurate time from the radio transmitter. In this case, an alternating-polarity minute pulse with 12 V, 24 V, 48 V or 60 V is transmitted to the socalled slave clock line via a 2 or 4-wire line. All slave clocks are connected in parallel to the slave clock line.
On analogue clocks, the minute pulse and the operating voltage are identical. A slave clock mechanism with minute pulse for a single-sided analogue clock corresponds to a power of approx. 5 mA with 24 V line voltage. The total power consumption of all slave clocks results from the num-ber of slave clocks to be controlled, the line length and the wire cross-section. It may not exceed the total output power of the required master clock.
Reliable clock systems
Additional rechargeable power reserve batteries for the master clock allow all connected analogue clocks to continue to run for a certain time in the event of power failure. Switchover between day-light saving time and wintertime is performed automatically.
